Congratulations on your new PB and a 13th place finish! The lighting is great and the bird pops right off that background.

Very nice detail and color. Might like a slightly different angle or crop to balance the negative space; it feels like there's too much on top and to the right.

Nice and crisp - Excellent sharpness.

Clear, clean, sharp and fresh capture. The blue waters enhances the white color as well. The diagonal position of the beak is effective as it gives the viewer the mood that the bird is intently watching the waters for a catch. Great image.
